Offering an authoritative and timely account by twenty-nine internationally recognized experts, Metal Ions in Biological Systems: Metal Complexes in Tumor Diagnosis and as Anticancer Agents is devoted solely to the vital research area concerning metal complexes in cancer diagnosis and therapy. In fourteen stimulating chapters, the book focuses on diagnostic tools such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), luminescent probes, and radiopharmaceuticals, including radiometallo-labeled peptides and assesses the role of metal ions, especially iron, in the action of antibiotics employed in anticancer chemotherapy.

Industry Reviews

"This is one of two recent volumes in a most successful series publishes since 1973 and which enjoys world renown and respect as both reference and as training material; the current volume is no exception. [T]his is a gem of a book for both newcomers and established researchers in the field; long may they continue!" - Applied Organometallic Chemistry, 2005 Promo Copy
